Careers in Real Estate
The real estate industry is enormous and dynamic, changing from minute-to-minute. A quality education, an established network of professional connections, and your natural interest in the field can help you stand out in this competitive field.
A thriving market means that there are always opportunities and career options. When you’re ready to take the lessons you learned at the College of Business and apply them in the job market, the Career Management Center is there to help. A service offered exclusively to College of Business students, the Career Management Center hosts career fairs and networking events, connects students with internships, and creates networking opportunities throughout the year.
